Zamfara APC crisis: Yari’s faction slams Senator Yarima



Former Zamfara State governor and presidential aspirant, Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima,  has been urged not to preempt the Judiciary in its determination on a pending case before it on the Zamfara State All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership tussle.

Reacting to the pending suit instituted by a faction of the APC loyal to former governor, Abdul Aziz Yari challenging the dissolution of the Zamfara State APC Working Committee by the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee chaired by Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni, Senator Yari had dismissed the pending litigation as wild goose chase as he noted that “the national leadership of the party is with the governor, court cannot do anything.”

But reacting to the remarks of Senator Yarima, Alhaji Lawal Liman, chairman of the Abdulazeez Yari camp, which filed the suit, accused Senator Yarima of trying to cast aspersion on the integrity of the Judiciary.

He said: “It’s rather unfortunate that Yarima is only interested in politics and issues that further compound the problems of the people of the state. Yarima has never commented on the security situation of the state even when his local government (Bakura) was in the eye of the storm, he never found it necessary to raise an ordinary motion on the floor of the Senate where he represented the people for 12 years. Just last week the road leading to Shinkafi from Kaura Namoda was blocked several times many people were killed and properties destroyed, the same thing happened in Maru, Bungudu and Tsafe LGAs, Yarima was never heard, either condoling or commiserating with the people.

“Rather than playing the role of father to all, Yarima’s interest is always on fuelling the feud among party members in the state. In the viral video, he was heard advising the governor to demolish the properties of opposition politicians. He seems to be blaming everyone for his failed presidential ambition.

“We don’t know when Yarima became a judge. The courts cannot be bought, influenced or intimidated, the worthy example of the Supreme Court judgement that brought Yarima’s new master to power and the recent judgement recognizing Shekarau’s faction in Kano is enough for all failed politicians like Yarima to know that Nigeria’s Judiciary has come of age and will always do the right thing regardless of which side the Federal Government is supporting in a particular case.”

The Abdulazeez Yari camp further expressed confidence in the capacity of the judiciary to dispense judgement devoid of favour and pressure.

“We are very confident that the court will restore law and order in the party by restoring the members of our SWC, notwithstanding Yarima’s efforts to brew crisis by denting the image of the judiciary.

“The dissolution of the SWC by Buni was illegal and no amount of blackmail or intimidation by the Yarimas of this world would stop the courts from righting the wrong.”
